Walks will kill you.
Doubles will kill you more.
At least the third double didn't hurt Scherzer. Nelson Cruz led off with a drive deep into right-center field, and stopped on second. But he never moved from there, as Scherzer got David Murphy on a pop to short center and struck out Mitch Moreland looking on a pitch that -- I mean, let's be fair about this -- was probably three inches outside.
Hey, umpires miss 'em both ways. Maybe Holland will catch a break like that. He can definitely use one, the way he's been going.
And Scherzer ended the minor threat by retiring Ian Kinsler on a fly to deep right. He's losing, but at least he's not throwing a ton of pitches, and it still looks look he'll outlast his mound counterpart.
